Wow. We won't see that date again for awhile. In fact not until the next century. It's supposed to be a lucky day in the numerology world, which would be nice for a change, wouldn't it..?? I read there are a plethora of weddings all over the world as well, plus lots of New Age ceremonies.
Aside from numerology and New Age hoopla, this day is really about our soldiers: not just the fallen, but all of them, men and women of the past, present and future. In the UK they had 2 minutes of silence at 11:00am. That makes it 11/11/11 at 11:00.
Veterans Day, Armistice Day, Remembrance Day. Whatever you want to call it, it's a very special day to take a moment to stop, bless our service people, and say a wee prayer that someday there will be no more war, or hate, or intolerance.
I took this photo at the VA on a sunny, hot morning on the 4th of July this past summer. It works just as well for our Veterans Day...
